Yeah, I think you should just run "populate_rootfs()" just before 
"module_init" (which is the same as "device_initcall()").

So perhaps somethign like this? (totally untested)

Btw, if the linker sorts sections some way (does it?) we could probably 
just make the vmlinux.lds.S file do

	*(.initcall*.init)

or something, and then just let special cases like this use

	__initcall(myfn, 5.1);

to show that it's between levels 5 and 6. But that would depend on the 
linker section beign sorted alphabetically. Does anybody know if the 
linker sorts these things somehow?

This patch is totally untested, but it looks obvious. It just says that 
we'll populate rootfs _after_ we've done the fs-level initcalls, but 
before we do any actual "device" initcalls.

If any really core stuff needs user-land - tough titties, as they say.
